Donald Trump has the intellectual depth of a coat of paint and his vocabulary has been estimated as being 200 words, by his own “ghostwriter” Tony Schwartz, who in fact wrote every word of “Art Of The Deal.” Trump doesn’t write, he’s never read a book, and in the seven months he’s been in office only seven topics keep reoccurring. Here’s a list from the Los Angeles Times of Trump’s Magnificent Seven:
Topic 1 — Obama
Trump was a vocal spokesman for the fringe conservative “birther” movement, raising questions in television interviews and on social media about whether the nation’s first black president was born in Kenya.
Now, in office, Trump has jabbed the former president for, among other things, healthcare and trade. He’s also alleged Obama wiretapped his Trump Tower phones last year
Topic 2 — Loyalty
“I need loyalty, I expect loyalty,” Trump told Comey, according to written testimony penned by the former FBI director. Trump has denied he asked Comey for loyalty.
In his words:
“As scout law says, a scout is trustworthy, loyal,” Trump said in a speech before the Boy Scouts of America last month. “We could use some more loyalty, I will tell you that.”
Topic 3 — Election Win
In his words:
“We won and won. … They said, there is no way to victory; there is no way to 270,” Trump said before the Boy Scouts. “But then Wisconsin came in. …Michigan came in.”
Topic 4 — Russia
In his words:
“Again, the story that there was collusion between the Russians & Trump campaign was fabricated by Dems as an excuse for losing the election.” twitter
“Russian officials must be laughing at the U.S. & how a lame excuse for why the Dems lost the election has taken over the Fake News.” twitter
Topics 5, 6, and 7 are Fake News, Crooked Hillary, and last but most emphatically not least, Crowd Size. Trump boasted to the Boy Scouts at their Jamboree that he couldn’t even see the people in the back because there were so many, in his mind apparently, stretching out to the horizon. “I’m waving to people back there so small I can’t even see them. Man, this is a lot of people. Turn those cameras back there, please. That is so incredible,” [attendance was estimated at 35,000 to 40,000 and was by no means record breaking.] “By the way, what do you think the chances are that this incredible massive crowd, record setting, is going to be shown on television tonight? One percent or zero?”
So there you have it, another day in the life of Donald Trump, another incredible massive crowd, record setting. With only seven topics recycling ad nauseum, the next three years, four months are really going to drag. Yet another compelling reason for cancelling this show mid-season.
